This depends on a lot of things.
What are you buying the cards for? For collecting? For selling?
For a competitive deck? Or unlimited format one?
Are you going to take in account that lots of DP sets will be rotated out in the near future?

for both collecting and selling.To get cards i need for my collection and the doubles either sell or trade them for other cards.

If it's for collecting, wouldn't you need to get all the booster boxes of the sets you are missing?

I would say Great Encounters is a good set just because Claydol and Rare Candy are worth a lot if you are selling, and they are good cards for deck building.

ok ill take that under consideration what other boxes are best.
Im trying to find ex fire red leaf green booster box but cant find it plz help.

Rising Rivals is full of Trainers, Supporters, Pokemon, and Holos that are sought after.

Go to ebay to find it, or trollandtoad.com..but to get on subject, I think that Platinum: Rising Rivals would be one of the best picks for you because it has a ton of good and playable cards, like Flygon LV X and Luxray GL LV X...you could play or sell either of them for $20+.

i cant find the ex fire red leaf green booster its impossible to find maybe im looking in the wrong places.
all i find is packs and the boosters are sold out.

Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

what is better buying online or buying at nintendo world for the booster boxes.
better by experience and better with price.

^Since most people don't know what Nintendo World is, I'll try to answer. Nintendo World only has the recent set, or at most the two most recent sets. Only go if you want Arceus or maybe Supreme Victors (which I highly doubt you want). Online is probably cheaper too.

Here is a listing on Ebay of a FRLG box: http://cgi.ebay.com/POKEMON-EX-FIRE-RED-LEAF-GREEN-36-PACKS-BOOSTER-BOX_W0QQitemZ350275769134QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item518e10132e

Not entirely sure if it is a reliable seller, but you might as well check it out.

all over online you see 36 packs but no box.
if its all just packs then you can figure out what packs have holo or not by weighing them.
if its a sealed box then you cant search it.
i got a feeling all the packs were tampered or searched before being listed.
but thanks anyway.
